Havering and Essex with an Alternative Twist!

Tea Cockails and Boozy Cakes at Teatulia, London

I was very kindly invited to review Teatulia with in return for a review. However, as always, all opinions are entirely my own.

Who doesn’t love an afternoon filled with tea and cake? That’s why I took Mumma Squibb and headed over to Teatulia’s Tea Bar on Neal’s Yard in Covent Garden. We didn’t just get tea and cake, no, we got a hell of a lot more so let me tell you all about it.

Teatulia is a little oasis of solitude away from the bustling streets of Covent Garden, with a pretty floral exterior and even prettier interiors. The staff are welcoming when you walk through the door and if you’re lucky enough to find a seat, grab a book from the living bookshelf and make yourself at home.

But Teatulia isn’t just a wonderfully cute tea bar; they have their tea grown by the 3,500 women who run their organic garden, where no pesticides are used and they create their range of bold, clean-tasting teas so they support a hell of a lot of jobs.

So let’s talk about those wonderful teas…

Due to being mildly allergic to caffeine, the team were super good at alerting me to what I could and couldn’t drink on the menu so that was a huge help. I ordered the Turmeric tea as it was something I’d never tried before and with it being advertised as vibrant and detoxifying it was exactly what I needed. Oh my, it was so good and tasted like nothing else like I’ve had before. It made me feel really good after drinking too.

Mumma Squibb ordered the Oolong tea as it was one she had never tried before. She said the description of ‘fragrant and relaxing’ was spot on and it was perfect to unwind with away from the rain outside.

Alongside our teas we tried three of the Happy Hour Cakes which are bespoke tea-infused cakes are made with Teatulia’s organic lemongrass, turmeric & green teas. Happy Hour Cakes are two local ladies that bake their cakes at home and hand-deliver them twice a week to the shop, which just shows how even more awesome Teatulia are with support local businesses!

The cakes we experienced were the Green G & Tea, the Mango & Turmeric and the Lemongrass & Ginger. They were all bloody delicious but I do think the Mango cake slightly won me over as I loved how diverse the flavours the were.

We were also treated to the super cute new blueberry pastry that was just ‘WOW’. It wasn’t too sweet and the coconut on top complimented the fruits so well.

Our second, but not final bevvy of the day was a Masala Cha which is inspired by the traditional spiced tea recipes from Bangladesh, spices are hand ground and carefully brewed with our black tea. Well, Mum’s was brewed with black tea, due to my allergy, the team kindly used the tumeric tea I had had previously so I didn’t miss out. They also paired mine with Oat Milk as I no longer have dairy!

So, Turmeric Cha needs to be a thing, it was amazing. In fact, it tasted like winter in a cup which was perfect as the rain fell outside the window behind us.

We finished our visit with a Passion Fruit Martini each, made with¬†Green Tea, Passion Fruit Syrup, Pineapple Juice and a little Lime Juice. Yes, I know Green Tea has caffeine in but I know my limits! This was such a great non-alcoholic twist on the usual Porn Star Martini that I’d be drinking on a Friday! We both really enjoyed our drinks and have our eyes set on the popular Lemongrass Mojito for next time we visit.

We had such a wonderful visit; the staff were all spot on, the decor was super Insta friendly if that’s your bag and all the food and drink we tried was lovely. We loved how Teatulia supported local business and sourced their tea responsibly which just added to a wonderful afternoon!

Luckily the rain had stopped, so we were able to take in a little shopping whilst in Covent Garden too; a lovely time spent with Mumma Squibb!
